GFOI Capacity Building Summit: supporting efforts to build national forest monitoring systems


The Global Forest Observations Initiative (GFOI) 
together with The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), the US SilvaCarbon and SERVIR program, organized the second GFOI Capacity Building Summit this past September 2017 in Kathmandu, Nepal. 

The GFOI Capacity Building Summit 2017 aims to facilitate more efficient and effective international cooperation in capacity development on forest monitoring and to enhance methods of training and knowledge transfer that ultimately improve the effectiveness of GFOI partners’ capacity building techniques. The summit provided an opportunity to assess, prioritize, and jointly plan targeted and harmonized capacity building activities that will help countries make progress towards improved monitoring techniques and reporting for REDD+ and the needs of other forum. 

The summit brought together country representatives who contributed to the design and development of their national forest monitoring systems (NFMS) and decision makers involved in planning and designing international cooperation assistance from Asia, Africa, and the Americas.
